    There are both pros and cons to the marketplace system.  Yes, Microsoft is making money with each item purchased.  However, these items are not required to enjoy the game.  They also support the people who make the content, which means they are more likely to make more and do any necessary updates.  The free system of Java relies on people putting a lot of time into something without being paid for it.

    You can also apparently still download free content from other websites.

    1. It was mojang’s implementation. microsoft only gives offices and supplies for minecraft staff

    2. It isn’t a money sucking machine, yes, mc staff makes a fortune but alot of the them goes to the content creators because in java it was not possible to reward them with hardwork with the marketplace it is

    3. It’s the parents job to moderate children

    4. Minecraft is the same game but only with more features you can ignore the store button and minecraft will play totally normal

    I agree, the Mc store is very bad. i Spent $10 worth of MineCoins and got a map with it, and the map was awful. I could have made a better map and addon than that. (It is called "City Life") And in Legacy Console, There were MashUp packs for $3, containing skins, a world, and a texture pack. they were pretty fun, not going to lie. but now we have overpriced microtransactions, with awful maps for $10. The map I'm Working on is so much better and it will be downloadable for free, so we don"t need the store. Microtransactions are really for a free mobile game, and although Minecraft Bedrock is supposed to be a mobile game, Its sad that the most powerful console in the world, the Xbox One X, is running a buggy game made for phones and tablets.

    Minecraft is one of the few paid mobile game with SOOOOOOOOOOO much microtransations. It shows the marketplace when you load up the game on the title screen

    The marketplace is fantastic and can’t wait to see it get even better. Game development is expensive and beyond most people’s understanding. And a child shouldn’t be able to make purchases without an adults password.

    The prices should definitely be lowered but I don't think microtransactions should be removed entirely. The revenue percentage that Mojang takes from the sales is probably to regain the $2.5 billion that Microsoft spent to buy the company, and hopefully prices will go down once they make this back.

     

    Also, the marketplace isn't the traditional implementation of "microtransactions" because usually that implies that you're buying a consumable item. Yes, minecoins are consumable, but for permanent DLC, not things like revivals and time skips like in other games. I think it's fine; the prices should just be lowered a bit.
